: Cotswold Breezes: His Rest Day

A Comedy in One Act by Matthew Boulton.
Played by the Cotswold Players

The living room of Bill Gosling's tenement London, S.E., is bare and sparsely furnished, but clean and neat. Bill is lolling in a Windsor armchair by the fireplace, his feet, encased only in grey lambswool socks, are on the only sound chair in the room. On the floor at his side is a large jug of beer. He is contentedly puffing his short clay pipe, when Mrs. De Vere Ponsonby, a tall, haughty, elaborately dressed woman of about forty-five, knocks at the door.


Writer: Matthew Boulton
Bill Gosling: Daniel Roberts
Mrs. De Vere Ponsonby: Eveline Bailes

: Cotswold Breezes: Just One More Question

A Duologue by F. Morton Howard.
Played by the Cotswold Players

Scene: Between the front door and the hat-stand. Time: 2.5 a.m.
He has just returned home. Conscious of the hour, he closes the front door very, very softly. But She has been sitting up to catch him at the earliest moment, and now, in dressing-gown and boudoir cap, She is watching from the foot of the stairs. He turns from the front door and gives a little gasp of surprise and dismay at seeing her. He ventures a conciliatory smile, but her expression continues ominous. Then she launches her attack.


Writer: F. Morton Howard
She: Eveline Bailes

Musicians: The Station Orchestra Orchestra
Conducted by: Warwick Braithwaite

: In the Spring A Young Man's Fancy: Dance Music

Love today is a syncopated version of that of fifty years ago, and as the dance plays a large part in the modern young man's 'fancy,' the obvious finale to this evening's programme is a little Dance Music.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
